Wheel weights

Recommended Posts

My dad just bought a couple of farmall m's off of big iron. One of them has these wheel weights on it.  I've never seen a set like it. There is an inside and outside weight and they are molded around the hub. Are they factory ih?

That's not how IH would normally mark a casting. If they were IH factory, they should have an IHC "circle" logo cast into them and a part number like 6818DA, which is the original factory one-piece wheel weight.

Gotcha. These are nice weights and probly weigh 400lbs apiece. I just thought the "ihco m&h" was kinda neat on them.

My 2 cents worth,. So not alot!!!

Aftermarket company made them. 

Labeled them for the International Harvester Company

Marked them M&H for the 2 model of tractors that they fit on for that time frame.

That would make sense, the designation is what they fit, not who made them.

The foundry's mark may be on the inside of the weight that's facing the wheel hub.

Thanks for the replies. I'm sure they were designed for an m or an h hub the way they are shaped to fit the hub.

^^^This^^^  

it’s coincidence that the models of tractor are the same as the brand of the weights. I’ve seen smaller weights with the same branding for different makes of tractors.

It's a silage loader. Not sure of brand. The reel thing lifts way up and spins and loose silage falls down then it conveys it out back. It all works but I'm sure he's gonna take it off. There is a video on big iron
